PANAJI: Aam Aadmi Party today demanded that the Health Minister make public through a health bulletin the availability of beds in private and public hospitals for covid patients in view of the increasing number of cases and growing complaints from people of non availability of beds.
AAP Goa Convener Rahul Mhambre said it pains to see the Chief Minister being more interested in politics by canvassing for candidates in Mapusa and Margao rather than being concerned about people’s health and having meetings with health officials to deal with the situation specially since he belongs to the medical fraternity.
In the prevailing situation in Goa, he said only God can save Goa and asked people to wear masks at all time and avoid visiting crowded places specially the election meetings being addressed by the chief minister.
Rahul demanded that the chief minister every day announce the stock of medical oxygen, availability of Remdesivir and covid vaccines and thanked the Kerala government for providing Goa with liquid oxygen to deal with the situation.
He regretted that even though Maharashtra has declared Goa to be a place for sensitive origin of Covid, the chief minister of Goa is still not insisting on covid negative certificate from people coming to Goa and Goa’s approach appears lackadaisical when compared with some other state that have curbed visits from outside their state.
